How to take care of leather sandals

Posted: January 27, 2014 in Misc, Wardrobe
  1. Do not store leather sandals in a plastic bag to avoid molding
  2. Clean the sandals with a damp cloth with a small amount of soap on it. It is best to use saddle soap. Dampen the cloth with water, apply a small amount of soap and rub the cloth to get a light lather
  3. Wipe the sandals with that cloth and then use another cloth to wipe away the soap very gently
  4. If there is any odor on the sandals, mix a bit of vinegar with some warm water and wipe the sandals with the mixture
  5. Sun dry the sandals
  6. Apply some mink oil onto the dry sandals and gently run it in with a piece of cloth. Never apply the oil directly, put it on the cloth and then work it into the sandals with the cloth

How do you wear your sweatshirt?

Posted: January 17, 2014 in Style, Wardrobe

Another piece of clothing that caught my attention is a plain sweatshirt. I have noticed it can be very well worn outside of the gym. One of the ways to wear it is with a pencil skirt, heels and a plain button up shirt. Pencil skirt, classic pumps and work shirt collar give a sweatshirt more of a business casual look. Very usefull when it comes to overly air-conditioned offices like mine.

Another way is to wear it with a flirty skater skirt or a pair of boyfriend jeans. When worn with boyfriend jeans, it can look a bit frumpy, so I like to spice it up with a pair of colorful heels and a statement necklace.
